PUBG Mobile is addictive

This isn’t the first time an incident like this has been reported. PUBG Mobile is believed to be one of the most addictive battle royale games available, currently banned in India. The mobile game was banned in India in September 2021 over privacy and security concerns under Section 69A of the IT Act.

At the time of banning the game last year, the government also said that the mobile game is addicting and harming the mental health of teens in the country.

In the past, several incidents revealed that teens spend thousands of rupees on in-game rewards such as weapons, guns, skins, and more to level up in the game. Parents have been complaining about games like PUBG affecting teens’ productivity at studies.
